Study Says Gentlemen Prefer Brunettes

As a curvier brunette with very dark brown hair—maybe even light black—I find that, when it comes to men, I lose to blondes…a lot. That might sound ridiculous to you, but I bet it makes perfect sense to the blonde girl that, er, distracted a guy I was having a fling with my senior year of college. But who's bitter? (I am. I so, so am.)

Can Having Sex Help Teens Stay Out Of Trouble?

Teenage puppy love (like Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber's!) and its, uh, consummation may be keeping kids of trouble. That's if you don't consider teenage sex trouble already. A new study from the University of Texas at Austin reveals that adolescents in committed sexual relationships are less likely to be delinquents than their super-promiscuous or virginal classmates.

Sex Is Money: In Poorer Countries, Women Use It As Currency

All around the world, a concept called "sexual economics" is at play. The principle goes something like this: Women have something men want, and it's called sex. Women's sexuality has a price that men's does not, so men trade resources with women just to get some: money, promotions, marriage proposals. This is why, according to a recent study, in countries that rank higher in gender equality, people have more sex.

Study: Men Are OK With Lesbian Cheating

A new study from the University of Texas at Austin found that men are more than twice as likely to stay with their girlfriend after they've cheated with another woman than after they've cheated with another man. We ladies, on the other hand, are less likely to continue dating a man that has had a same-sex affair than one who's slept with a woman.
